    Me: *on the phone* “Good afternoon, this is **** School.”

    Caller: “Hi, I need to see if I can get my son into your school?”

    Me: “All right, that’s easy. Come over anytime next week, when we’ll be taking applications.”

    Caller: “Can you fax it to me?”

    Me: “No, I can’t, but you can print it out from our website, along with all the information there. Is that Ok?”

    Caller: “Yeah…”

    Me: “We only accept applicants for 7th through 9th grade from this school district, just to let you know.”

    Caller: “Oh, what is your district?”

    Me: “**** high school district.”

    Caller: “Oh, where is that?”

    Me: “**** and its neighboring cities.”

    Caller: “Oh. That’s where we’re moving.”

    Me: “You don’t live in the district?”

    Caller: “No, we live in New Jersey. We’re going to move to California so my son can go there.”

    Me: “…ma’am, I’m afraid that you need to live within the district to put in an application.”

    Caller: “Yes, we’re moving there.”

    Me: “You need to be in the district when you put in the application.”

    Caller: “When are applications due?”

    Me: “They’re due the third week of January through the second week of February.”

    Caller: “Oh. We’re not moving for a little while.”

    Me: “Yes…you need a copy of a gas or electricity bill so we can verify your address is in the district. If I may ask, ma’am, what grade is your son in?”

    Caller: “Oh, he doesn’t go to school.”

    Me: “…”

    Caller: “My son will be one year old in a few weeks!”
